The Champion commercial-grade cold press juicer was invented in 1954, and still to this day, is considered to be the best design of built-to-last, quality juicing for commercial kitchens and households around America. You can still buy replacement parts for every Champion model ever produced. Easy to assemble. Just as easy to clean.

To extract the juice, it uses a masticating action, which turns the vegetable pulp into a ‘butter’. This pulp is then squeezed through the strainer, all the while ensuring that the tiny fibre-bearing particles in the produce aren’t prematurely oxidised.
The large feeding chamber reduces preparation time because fruit and vegetables don't have to be cut up small. The Champion juicer also pumps the juice out fast,k so less time in the kitchen, more time to put your feet up with a glass of fresh fruit juice or an icy fruit crush on a sunny afternoon.
BENEFIT OF COLD PRESS JUICE
Regular juicers destroy much of the nutritional value of the fruit or vegetables, and the resulting juice has an acidic effect on the body as opposed to the desired alkaline effect you get from drinking freshly made, cold pressed juice.
